    Experts Expert Gardening Knife
    Tools   /   Comments
    Anne Marie Chaker's May 15 "Just One Thing" Wall Street Journal feature focused on Jonathan Wright — a professional gardener at the Chanticleer Public Garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania — and his indispensable Lesche Digging Tool (above).
    Excerpts follow.
    --------------------------
    "Jonathan Wright is a self-identified "plant geek" with a soft spot for summer-flowering dahlias.
    His Lesche Digging Tool, which he says he never gardens without… [is a] 12-inch knifelike tool [with] a serrated edge, which makes it useful for cutting and dividing perennials or even twine. Mr. Wright says the Lesche knife is a good substitute for a trowel when tucking bulbs or small plants into the ground. The action is slightly different from a more labor-intensive digging motion: "I stab it into the ground and pull toward me," he says, creating a cavity in the soil that makes planting "three times as fast" — significant when there are, say, hundreds of bulbs on the to-do list.
    The knife's tip makes a handy wedge for lifting weeds or even pavers, which sometimes require resetting or weeding between. In the vegetable garden, the flat edge of the knife makes it easy to draw a straight line in the soil for seeding.
    The steel tool's maker is W.W. Manufacturing Co. Inc., a Bridgeton, N.J., supplier of rakes, spades and other gardening and landscaping equipment. A plate just below the handle "guards your hand from sliding down" onto the blade, says Ingrid Hawk, co-owner of the company, which was founded by her father, Walter Lesche, in the mid-1950s and known as Walt's Welding.
    Mr. Wright says he was given the tool when he started gardening at Chanticleer as a student fellow in 2001. "One of the gardeners said, 'Here, take this, it will be your new best friend,' " he recalls. Today, he is in charge of designing and planting terraces surrounding the mansion on the 47-acre property. "It did replace any other trowel or weeding tool I had," he says.
    Another benefit: The red handle makes it easy to find if he leaves it in the garden. But even if that doesn't work, "I've bought a backup," he says.

    The Self Balancing Electric Unicycle
    This briefcase-sized electric unicycle that keeps a rider perfectly balanced at all times with gyroscopic sensors. The unicycle’s 500-watt electric motor hat can push a 160lbs man at 13mph for up to two hours on a three hour charge. It can support riders up to 250 pounds, but your mileage will vary depending on how close you get to that limit. Like the Segway, accelerating and stopping the unicycle is accomplished by gently leaning forwards or back. It shouldn’t be that hard though, and once you get the hang of it, you’re sure to get a lot of enjoyment out of your $2,700 expense.
